Kierkeggard's Existentialism is a study of the self, and what it meant to Kierkegaard to become a self. From his first writing in which Socrates is
portrayed as the true existential self, to his last writings that focus on Jesus as the theological self, Kierkegaard sought to express his own spiritual development. At the same time he wanted to expose the falseness that the Church of his day had become. Thus, Kierkegaard raised the cry against Christendom to return to the true understanding of Christianity, personified in the existential reality of the founder, Jesus.
